DNC Chairman Howard Dean Will Deliver ODP Convention Keynote Address
Oklahoma Democrats Will Convene May 18-20
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean will give the keynote address at the Oklahoma Democratic Party Convention on Saturday, May 19th, in Oklahoma City. ODP Chairman Lisa Pryor said Chairman Dean has been an advocate of making the national Democratic Party stronger by supporting and staffing state party organizations in all 50 states, including Oklahoma.
The ODP Convention will be held from May 18th through the 20th at the Bricktown Coca-Cola Center. Dean will speak during Saturday's first general session. Pryor said the theme for the 2007 convention is, "Taking Care of Business, The Democratic Way." Democratic delegates will elect state officers and discuss resolutions at the three-day convention.
Pryor said Dean's presence "confirms the national Democratic Party is committed to electing Democrats and promoting Democratic ideals in Oklahoma."
"Governor Dean's 50 State Strategy, localized for Oklahoma, was an important part of our success in 2006. I look forward to a stronger partnership and a stronger state party in 2007 and 2008 through Dean's leadership," Pryor said.
